    Let me start off by saying I'm not bashing pirates or anything(<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">cause I'm one too </span>).

    You guys who wish to pirate games one your 3DS that's great, good for you but as you should already know the 3DS has horrible battery life. And most DS flashcarts(especially the clones) would suck your ds battery dry,only a few of them are battery life considerate.

    And now you want to use those flashcarts in your 3DS. Get my meaning?

    And then what happens when 3DS mode is hacked. When using 3DS mode you would be using even more power.

    Just look at CannonFoddr's battery life results for the <b>DS Lite</b>.

    And now imagine the battery power used for 3DS Mode.

    BTW These are just speculations especially since 3DS mode isn't hacked yet.

    Seriously? You just quoted a different post and repeated what that posts shows. Why couldn't you just comment in that thread?

    Great post there.

    And to the OP: can you put that quote in spoilers? That is a massive quote.

    OT: I understand where you're going with this, and this is the main reason why I don't use my SCDS2 on my 3DS.

    ???

    I just did another 3DS battery test yesterday with my app:
    AK2i
    Brightness 1
    Power Save ON
    Audio 50%
    Native Resolution (256X192) ON

    Time: 7hrs 0mins

    That's actually pretty close to retail carts with similar settings.

    Not everyone uses flashcarts to pirate. I use my DSTwo to play GBA games that I've ripped.

    Thats weird cause I tried my 3DS with these settings and I got around 6-8 hours no problem:

    SCDS2 / 3DS game + Power Saver ON + Brightness 1 + 3D OFF + Wireless ON

    Do people moaning about the battery life leave their games or apps in suspend rather than exiting out of them before closing the system?

    There was no need to make this thread.
    You can make comments regarding the 3DS even if the thread is not in the 3DS section.
